Equium A100-147: can not play games becauce slow DVD player


I have a laptop Equium A100-147. I tried many games on my laptop which should conform to the specifications required for example battlefield 2, however, these games does not work and I didn't know why. I then realized that all the games I tried were all on 4 DVD-ROM drive demanding x, and the specifications I provided with my laptop did not specify what kind of DVD player, I had another super multi layer or something.

It is while I tried the games that were demanding CD-ROM which all worked fine, I then tried a game that was 2 x DVD ROM demanding that worked apart from a small problem with models of characters not displayed, so I took back defective. Then I tried a 1 x DVD-ROM game that worked perfectly.

Today, I decided to get my DVD specifications, where I found that my laptop should read 8 x DVD - ROM drives.
So my question is, is my defective DVD player for not playing more than 1 x DVD - ROM games? And can I contact Toshiba or my provider for repair or replacement or my problem would be something else?

Thank you, Josh


As far as I know the laptop was delivered with the drive UJ - 841S and the drive supports 8 x DVD-ROM.
Of course, there must be something wrong if the drive cannot read DVD-ROM media at full speed. The middle is not supported or the drive malfunctions

What you can do is search for the update of the firmware. Many laptops come with the same drive. See the categories of driver and, possibly, there is a new update of the firmware.

You can also try to remove the physical drive from the laptop and reboot the device without the drive. Then turn off the appliance, install the drive again and the boot upward.
The laptop must initialize the firmware again and maybe this will help

But it seems you notebook is not very old and the warranty is valid. If you need to contact the ASP in your country for more details and possibly for disc replacement

  • Once I downloaded the new version of Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.262, I can not play games with my friends on Yahoo Messenger.

    It could be a coincidence, but when I upgraded to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.262 I can not play games with my friends on Yahoo Messenger. I know that when I've updated for a reason that I had to try 3 times before it took. It shows that it is updated. I wonder if I have to uninstall and reinstall. Also, I never use Internet Explorer 8 but when I went there to check I found a plug check link there and it showed over there that Adobe Flash Player necessary update but it was an older version and not a Foxfire had updated me too. Now I'm really confused if it causes a problem. I've never had to control Internet Explorer for plug-ins before. Have always just updated to Foxfire since that's what I use. Adobe Flash Player seems to play videos OK not really sure if this is the issue or not. My Java plug-ins have been very well and have been updated some time there, so I know it's not that. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Hey again,
    After hours of reading and checking to make sure I had good things enabled, I did, I gave up and uninstalled the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, they gave me and re-installed and later I had my friend get on Messenger and we tried games and it worked this time.
    For some strange reason when I updated it took me 3 tries before it took. So even if he told me that it has been installed, apparently it wasn't really. Just goes to show you that you can not trust what you see.
    What has really scratching my head was I went to Internet Explorer 8, which I never use more and discovered you can now get Mozilla plug in slip out there and when I did showed that same Adobe Flash Player is outdated but it was to a different version. Not knowing if it would help, I installed a new too and he said it was his understanding that it does not. So I guess you can have 1 version installed on the computer 1 despite 2 browsers different different versions. It becomes too complicated for me. Laughing out loud!
    I work with computers all the time at work but not the technical stuff. If it's something simple, I can guess through it to help someone but it's my first personal computer for me and is a former first, so I got experience using different types. We use the desk at work as well. Personally, I like computers laptops for various reasons. And the mention of people many browsers go way over my head.
    Please answer this question though and you answer back.

  • Equium A100-147: can I use external monitor with 1920 x 1200 output


    I have an equium A100-147, anyone know if its possible to use my external lcd as office extended to its native resolution of 1920 x 1200, I want to use it for photo editing.

    None of these options to external display currently on the graphics card drivers provide a decent game with the external monitor.

    How can I make it fit on the screen without stretch or compress images with a decent resolution?

    Hi Mae

    As you probably know the resolution you want to use depends on the installed graphics driver.
    If the graph does not contain the 1920 x 1200 resolution you will not be able to use it.

    But maybe after a small modification of the graphics driver you will be able to choose such an external resolution.

    Maybe the procedure described by Jogi might help.

  • Satellite A300D - is overheating and can not play games

    I'm quite desperate. My Satellite A300D is overheating. I can not play new games. Temperature hit 94 degrees and laptop is restarted. I cleaned it several times, very precisely and nothing. So I decided to send it to the official service of Toshiba. After that, the phone is still the same.

    My only hope is buy cooling grease and cooling stock-base. But before that ideas, advice?

    Thanks for everything...


    I can understand you mate, but have you contacted Toshiba service center again? You should speak with the technicians and explain the situation. I put t know what they did, do you know that?

    Cleaning of the laptop is still a good idea but if it doesn't work maybe the thermal compound must be renewed. So ask a technician for help laptop.

    By the way: what OS are you using? You can use the same problem with the factory settings and preinstalled display driver?

  • Why some DVDs will not play in my computer DVD player?

    I have a small collection of commercial DVD movies.  Most of them come from the place of the U.S. market, and some come from Asia... He play ALL these DVD in my Phillips DVD player that is connected to my TV.

    But only some of these DVD will play in my DVD player which is in my computer Dell Inspiron 531 with Windows 7 Ultimate edition.  This computer has a DVD/CD SAMSUNG HD161HJ SCSI disk drive.

    Some of the DVDs that will play on my computer are the American market, and some of them are of the Asian market, so I don't think that this has nothing to do with why some of these DVDs will not play on my computer.

    DVDs that play fine in my Phillips DVD on my TV player that will not play on my computer don't yet seem to close at play on my computer.  The DVD that will play on my computer liquidation (you can hear the noise) in the DVD player in 20 seconds and they start playing automatically in Windows Media Player... but I welcomed all others who won't have to sit in the DVD player for several minutes each in my tests and nothing happens... There is no wind sound and all nothing is happening on the computer screen.

    This doesn't seem to be a problem with the driver software for the disk hard because some of the DVDs will play.

    None of these DVDs are buckled and all of them are clean.

    I tried two or three times test each of DVDs that won't play, the removed from drive and put them back in.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you


    Hi Dale,

    Although I never had no problem with the DVD or the CD I burned on PC, I think you're going to probably the same thing, that I've been with this internal DVD/CD player, is not a software problem, but just the characteristics of a lower quality DVD/CD player, and it isn't necessarily the symptoms of a dying man in car , but just a stock car low quality that some computer manufacturers cut corners with.
    The drive in the computer that I was referring in this thread is a DVD/CD SAMSUNG HD161HJ SCSI disk drive. Which may or may not be identical or similar to the reader, you have problems with, but the computer on which the reader is underway is a Dell Inspiron 531.
    Through the information that I've gathered on this thread and on another forum, I came to the conclusion that it's just a cheap player who gives intermittent performance recognizing various DVD, but as I said, the drive I troubleshooting always recognize DVDs and CDs that I burned in it... It was just the DVD movie that I have problems with.
    I dug my loyal reader DVD LaCie and plugged and I had no problems with him acknowledging and play ONE of my DVDs on this machine, which proves that the problem has nothing to do with the software system or DVD player software, as in the case suggested by someone else on this thread.
    Just buy yourself a Firewire drive or USB-2 DVD decent and you're probably fine.

  • Can not play games on Satellite A60

    I the A60 (Mobile Radeon 7000 IGP) and cannot play games on it. Particularly annoying is that I freeze in second life with a gray screen. I have contacted ATI who told me to look here but I have the updated driver from this site. Someone at - it ideas?


    First of all, I think that you can not expect that you will be able to play the latest games because of limitation technique graphics card. Only thing that you can do right now is to install the driver designed by the manufacturer of the graphics card or downloaded from some independent sources.

    It will require your graphics card to run faster, but I hope you won't have overheating problems.

    To resolve this problem, you must install the Windows Installer Cleanup utility as administrator. To do this, right click on the Setup file (msicuu2.exe) and choose Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click on continue.

  • Installed the Flash Player 10.1, but still can not play games on Facebook.

    I recently tried to install the new flash player 10.1 with the same error message could not be saved.  I think that I tried to do it 100 times receive the same error message. I checked that I am the administrator.  I think I finally had installed and was so excited, but when I went to the 'about' page to see if it has been installed there is nothing there.  I went to facebook to play bejeweledI and I see only a blank white page with the Red Cross.  Then the pop up appears asking me to install the latest version of flash player.  I have windows xp, System 32, IE 7.  I've installed shockwave 11 and you can see it in add and remove file and also in the add ons.  However, the only thing I see on Flash player is the Adobe Flash Player 10 plugin but there is nothing under "size" here.  When I go in the c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash folder I see the following files:

    Flash 10h.ocx

    Text to install Flash

    Flash player.xpt

    Flash util10h_activex.exe install/uninstall vs

    Flashutil10h_ activex.dll


    Npswf32.dll shockwave flash 10.1r53

    Install the text

    I also have the plugin Java 1.6.0 21 installed and can be seen in the add ons.  I have Adobe acrobat 7.0 is installed.

    I have Norton SystemWorks 2006 and updated each year.  I hope that's all the information you need.  I have read other threads and have tried everything I can think of, but I have to do something wrong.  Please HELP, I'm going crazy with question!  Thanks in advance...

  • Equium A100-147: can I use an external mouse wired or wireless

    Hi just bought an A100-147, anyone knows if I can use an EXTERNAL MOUSE wired or wireless

    Hi Peter,.

    You should, as far as I know, be able to use two types of mouse; I know that many people find it more natural and easier than the mouse pad integrated, but that is purely a personal preference.

    A wired mouse plug directly into a USB port or a round PS/2 port, check the ports that you have before you buy anything, but you should have no problem with USB.

    Use of wireless mouse a small receiver which plugs into a USB port and would be normally equipped with software to run it.

    I hope this helps.
